The collection of Sicilian Puppets (Opera dei Pupi) in Randazzo is part of the touristic itinerary of "The museums of the Etna's Historical Identity", a project of the Taormina Etna District, promoted by the European Union. 

The museum, that is located in a former municipal slaughterhouse, now hosts a rich collection of ancient puppets: 39 specimens of high historical and artistic value, manufactured between the XIX and the XX centuries by artisans of Catania (the so-called "pupari"), and dressed in precious fabrics and armor in chiseled metal. The puppets became "Pupi" during the first half of the XIX century.

There are two traditions or schools of the "Opera dei Pupi": the one of Palermo, widespread in the western part of the island, and the one of Catania, widespread in the eastern part of the island and even in Calabria. The main difference between the two schools is in weight and size of the puppets.

In this museum are exposed the puppets of the tradition, which were used in many shows about the "chanson de geste" of the era of Charlemagne and his paladins. The puppets were property of the "puparo" Ninì Calabrese from Messina.The charachters are the most famous ones, including Orlando and Rinaldo, which have always fascinated adults and children.
